Effects of Experimentally Induced Familiarization of Content and Different Response Modes on Achievement from Programmed Instruction.
Abramson, Theodore; Kagen, Edward
This study investigated attribute by treatment interactions between prior familiarity and response mode to programmed materials for college level subjects by manipulating subjects' familiarity. The programs were a revised version of Diagnosis of Myocardial Infraction in standard format and in a reading version. Materials to familiarize subjects with the technical vocabulary and electrocardiogram tracings were developed. The critical measures were the scores attained on the verbal and technical post-test and the delayed post-test. The data, analyzed using multiple linear regression, yielded significant response mode by familiarity interactions on three of the four criteria. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
